The University is committed to the proper management of work health, safety and welfare and aims to provide a safe and healthy workplace for its staff, students, contractors and visitors by having a planned and systematic approach to the management of work health, safety and injury management.
The Work health, safety and injury management page displays important information and policies you should familiarise yourself with. Some of these include the Work Health and Safety Policy, children on campus, smoking, drugs and alcohol on campus, working in hot conditions, electrical safety, manual handling, event safety, dealing with snakes, wasps and bees and avoiding slips, trips and falls as well as other health and well-being links.
Your supervisor will go through the WH&S induction checklist with you on your first day, and explain any local area hazards to you. Both you and your supervisor need to sign this form and your supervisor will keep the form on file.
For more information, visit the WH&S contacts page. You can also find out about WH&S training and your local Health & safety representatives.
